Default Re: New Dream Builder Biker

Thanks, ezdoesit.

I see the search function shows this crackpot isnt alone in a diesel electric locomotive style genset-motor bike dream. Someone suggests a "matched" generator-motor. To me, that means I use a brushless motor and a brushless motor as a generator. The generator end might need to be about 40% bigger in output than the hub motor, and timing on brushless motors is also important.
I'm not sure how to do this. My first experiment might be a small brushless motor turned by a drill and the output connected directly to another brushless motor. No oscilloscope means I wont be able to look at the waveforms.
